An Evening with Phil Beer - September 4th
An Evening with PHIL BEER
Back in the day Phil was based in Brighton and played and recorded with many Sussex musicians. Since then he has worked with Mike Oldfield, The Rolling Stones, Steve Harley, The Albion Band, Feast of Fiddles and, for the past 25 years, with Steve Knightley in Show of Hands.
He came to national prominence in the duo he formed with Paul Downes, who will be making a guest appearance on the night.
From a personal perspective, I have to thank Phil for being a mentor to The Taverners, a band I used to be in, from its early days right to the end. He masterminded our first album, recorded in Brighton and he and Paul Downes subsequently produced our next two albums on the Folk Heritage label and he joined us, along with Steve Knightley, for our last ever gig in 2011.
He has played in huge arenas, not least on five occasions at The Albert Hall, so this will be a rare opportunity to see him in an intimate setting. Virtuoso fiddle and guitar playing are guaranteed but there is sure to be an insight of a life in music, laced with his trademark humour and anecdotes a-plenty.
